The New York Giants named three initial head coach candidates, Matt Rhule, Josh McDaniels, and Eric Bieniemy. But since then the list has grown.

The New York Giants are once again looking for a head coach and the list of names they have requested interviews with, or have already interviewed, is very, very long. At first, the list consisted of three main names, Matt Rhule, Josh McDaniels, and Eric Bieniemy, but that is no longer the case.

Since firing Pat Shurmur last Monday the Giants have held interviews with several potential candidates and scheduled interviews with others. So far the Giants have interviewed former Packers head coach, Mike McCarthy, and Cowboys passing game coordinator and defensive backs coach, Kris Richard.

In addition to these two, the G-Men have also scheduled interviews with Baylor head coach, Matt Rhule, Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator, Don “Wink” Martindale, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator, Eric Bieniemy. In addition, two New England Patriots assistants, offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, and special teams coordinator/wide receivers coach, Joe Judge are scheduled to meet with the Giants brass.

Earlier this week I wrote about the candidates who had been named at the time in Rhule, McDaniels, and Bieniemy. By the time that article was published, more candidates had been named and I’m sure that will be the case with this one as well.

However, at this moment in time, these are the names that have been mentioned as candidates to be the New York Giants next head coach. So without further ado, here are the resumes of Mike McCarthy, Kris Richard, Don “Wink” Martindale, and Joe Judge and also the order of who I believe to be the weakest to strongest candidates.
